I honestly think I'm going to get into the art of photography... I've been messing around with my boyfriend's new Nikon D5000 and I am absolutely in love with the thought of capturing the life around me through the lens of an amazing contraption and plastering my handy work all over the net! Of course fashion has to be involved one way or another. :) Stay tuned...
A little inspiration...
Go check out more episodes at Maestroknows.com see if this doesn't get you inspired. :)
Why limit ourselves? Why try to mold ourselves to fit into the society we don't believe in?
People are twisted in the worst way, and I'm not talking about the pedophiles and rapist roaming the streets of our community right now, that's another topic I'll get on in a later post, Im talking broader like you and me. Why do we feel like we need to change ourselves completely to please others? We all do it! I too have victimized myself into caring what others in my community truly thought about me. Honestly why do we care?
Life is about expression, its about living the way you want to live and not have to worry about the thoughts of those sitting across from you at the coffee shop.
As I'm typing this I no longer care what you or the person peeping over your shoulder is thinking about me. It's time to just celebrate who we are as human beings. That's where all the real inspiration comes from. Not the barbies or the kens floating around in the industry (no shots fired). Nor does it come from the rappers with the big chains and iced out grills that they can barely speak through (agian no shots fired).
It's from lifestyle individuals like these
Photographers like this...
Who take shots like these...
Producers like this
Who does tracks for artists like this
This is where inspiration needs to be drawn from. From individuals like these. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but expression like this doesn't get any better.
So rid yourself of the ridiculousness of society's rules and become your own person. Become a walking inspiration for others. Let's not give into the trends or the fads, besides being like others gets pricey, being yourself is priceless. (corny I know, buy you all get the point! ;)
The Hundred's Paparazzi Backpack, a very stylish way to carry around your professional camera. This also has to be the hardest thing to get a hold of as of right now. We've called Standard, they're out of stock, hell even the website is even out of stock. Not sure when they'll get more in, but I'm hoping it's soon.
I was going to get this for the boyfriend this year for either his birthday or Christmas, but as of right now... looks like this will be on hold for now. Im going to keep searching though. I love how simple it looks.
